Laurence Sterne's beloved comic novel, The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman is the "biography" of Tristram Shandya wonderfully humorous and eccentric narrator who guides the reader from his conception to his birth, and on to his life as an adult. The twists and turns of Tristram's life expose him to such memorable characters as Uncle Toby, Corporal Trim, Parson Yorick, Dr. Slop and the Widow Wadmanwhose own stories enrich the central narrative of Tristram's life.
Published in nine separate volumes from 1759 1767, Tristram Shandy is recognized today as one of the first modern novels in English literature. Since its publication over 250 years ago, Sterne's classic has influenced numerous reproductions for both the stage and screen, including the 2006 'mokumentary' Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story, directed by Michael Winterbottom and starring Steve Coogan.
